My February Beauty Staples

I think we can all agree that January has been the longest ass month in the history of the entire universe and for that reason, we all deserve some new beauty products right? With Valentine's Day just around the corner, there's all the reasons in the world to treat ourselves (because we all know that V Day is really about treating ourselves right...?) and I've been using quite a few new beauty products over the last few weeks, for my hair, body and skin, some of which have definitely become a permanent staple in my everyday routine.

First up, we have the hair shizz. Now anyone who knows me will know that my hair routine is basically get out of bed and do absolutely nothing at all with it cause I'm a lazy lil bitch most days. However, Sam McKnight has recently come into my life with four amazing new products that have fit in with my "bed head" style perfectly. Sam McKnight is the legendary hair stylist behind so many of the dreamy styles we've seen on catwalks and magazine covers and his new products are everything that a "done but undone" girl like me could ask for, plus the packaging is absolutely dreamy - just look how sleek those bottles are! One of these products has absolutely saved my bacon over the last few weeks and that is the Lazy Girl dry shampoo. I've been lathering my whole head in this before bed when I'm not washing my hair, scrunching it up and sleeping on it and it's a saviour for when you need to stretch your wash out for just one (or five....) more days. It completely mattifies my roots and gives texture to my fringe so I can easily keep my grungy hair without much effort at all.

The Cool Girl Barely There Texture Mist has also become a staple for me, especially when I'm going for something more "styled." I was at a formal event the other week and this was amazing for adding a little bit of oomf to my hair, something which is essentially when you don't really do up-do's or typical "formal" hairstyles. My hair didn't budge all night (even after one or ten vodkas...) so it's safe to say I was very impressed with this beauty.

Call me materialistic but these next two pink products fit in perfectly with the Valentine's Day theme I've got going on here (cause obvs everything has to be pink or red in February right?) and first up we've got the Gatineau Gentle Silk Toner, a toner that is gentle on the skin, made to soften it, remove make-up and impurities and I've been loving using this on a morning as part of my skincare routine. It leaves my skin feeling so clean and fresh, creating the perfect base for my daily make-up and although I have been quite lucky with my skin over the past few months (touch wood!) it's been looking very glowy and very clear over the past few weeks too. I use Pixi's Glow Tonic on an evening followed by a heavier moisturiser and the Gatineau Toner is the perfect way to follow this on a morning - it works like a dream. 

Finally we have a product from one of my favourite brands of the moment - Antipodes. Obviously a blogger's favourite, Antipodes has brought me some of my favourite ever skincare products, from eye creams to moisturisers to face masks and of course, hand creams. Their "Delight" hand and body cream has long been a feature in my bathroom so I couldn't wait to get my hands on the Joyful Hand and Body Cream and I was not disappointed. The smell is literally my idea of heaven (not that I can actually smell it at the moment as I sit here writing this with the worst blocked nose I've ever had in my life, obvs without being dramatic), with berries and hibiscus scents coming through. As always the cream itself is thick but not heavy or oily and leaves your skin feeling absolutely bloody amazing, definitely like that Peter Griffin dolphin gif we all know and love. I've been keeping this on my bedside cabinet and lathering my hands in it every night and they've just felt and smelled wonderful ever since - I'll definitely be repurchasing this one when I get through it.
